WestJet to open contact centre in Moncton, create 400 jobs
Contact centre to open in September, jobs to be created over 4 years
CBC News Posted: Apr 04, 2016 2:41 PM AT Last Updated: Apr 04, 2016 2:41 PM AT
Moncton has landed a new WestJet contact centre, which is expected to create more than 400 jobs over four years.
Premier Brian Gallant made the economic development announcement on Monday at the Greater Moncton International Airport's international lounge. The contact centre, which is expected to open in September, will have a $24-million impact, he said. The provincial government will provide up to $3.5 million in funding to WestJet, with Opportunities NB providing a $1 million forgivable loan and up to $2.5 million in payroll rebates.
Mark Porter, of WestJet, said Moncton's bilingual workforce played an important role in the airline's decision to set up shop in the city, said Porter. The new centre will allow WestJet to enhance services to its French-speaking guests. About two-thirds of positions will be full-time, while the remainder will be part-time, he said.

Accenture's Lisa Bullock and Angela Hawkins (pictured far left and far right respectively)
together with ContactNB Community Involvement Committee members
Deirdre Rourke Adams and Cheryl Steadman (inside left and right respectively).
On March 23rd, our Community Involvement Committee had the pleasure of visiting Accenture's Fredericton location to celebrate with them the tremendous involvement they have had in supporting their local community.
Accenture's "Skills to Succeed" program, which is focused on a lofty goal of providing three million people around the world with the skills needed to secure meaningful employment or build a business by 2020, helped organizations such as Changes, Junior Achievement and the Multicultural Association. As a team, they raised over $15,000 to help these organizations, along with many person-hours of volunteer work. In fact, since opening their Fredericton location in 2000, this particular Accenture office has raised more than $230,000 for local non-profit organizations and more than $120,000 for the United Way!
Some of the charitable organizations that they have helped over the years in New Brunswick include: Transition House, Canadian Cancer Society, Terry Fox Run, Run For The Cure, 24 Hour Relay, SPCA, United Way, Fredericton Food Bank, Children's Wish Foundation, Salvation Arm, Fredericton Soup Kitchen, Girl Guides of Canada, Canadian Red Cross, Junior Achievement, Changes Fredericton, The Multicultural Association, Jobs Unlimited and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
Accenture is clearly making a difference in the community in which they live and work, and ContactNB was thrilled to celebrate their community contributions! We celebrated this effort by enjoying some cake and conversation together. We enjoyed a very warm welcome from all of their staff and they enjoyed the visit from ContactNB!

In December, 2015 the Customer Care Team at Atlantic Lottery raised over $1300 for the “Coalition Against Abuse in Relationships” (CAAR). The funds were raised through team potluck lunches and eight weeks of “Jeans Days” in the centre. This is the second year that the Customer Care Team raised funds for this very worthwhile organization.
Cheque presentation to Terrence Trites, President of CAAR. Pictured are:

(Left to Right in Back Row) Maurice Cormier and Darlene Rand.
In a letter from CAAR President Terrence Trites to Atlantic Lottery, he said, "We commend Atlantic Lottery and its Customer Care [team] for their outstanding kindness and wonderful gesture. Through your donations, the lives of victims of abuse are positively affected and you are helping our outreach program in more ways than imagined. Our outreach worker has been able to improve assistance for basic needs by giving clients gift cards for groceries, when they would have had no other means to afford food for themselves.
Transportation is often another problem for clients to get to and from appointments, counselling sessions and obtaining groceries. With your donation of Codiac Transpo Bus Passes we are able to increase client’s ability to access other services.
Your donation of money will allow our clients to access specific services such as counselling or enhance their own safety and security.
The CAAR board members and employee would like to thank you again for your wonderful acts of kindness and contributions to the well being of people in our community."
Said Atlantic Lottery's Manager of Customer Care, Darlene Rand, "For the Customer Care Team at Atlantic Lottery, the fundraising efforts are one of the ways that we are making Atlantic Canada a better place."
On behalf of ContactNB, we commend Atlantic Lottery for their Community Involvement, and for being such a valued member and great representation of the contact centre industry by helping those in need in the community in which we work and live.
